jay-z-arthur-ashe-t-shirtTotal Pro Sports – Tennis and Jay-Z might seem like an odd couple, but they did manage to create an impressive product.

Free of any humorous comments or signs of hatred, this limited edition Arthur Ashe t-shirt is a piece of work based on pure style and the history of the game.

Rapper Jay-Z, who has expanded his work beyond music, designed the honorary piece of apparel for this year’s U.S. Open, which is currently underway.

“I am thrilled that someone of Jay-Z’s stature would take part in this project,” said Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, Arthur Ashe’s widow who remains active in the USTA NJTL network and other charitable endeavors associated with her late husband’s legacy, including ArthurAshe.org. “This shirt will honor the legacy of my husband and remind people of his contributions to both the sport of tennis and this country’s underprivileged youth.”

The t-shirt is priced at $35 and proceeds will go to the USTA National Junior Tennis and Learning Network and the Arthur Ashe Endowment for the Defeat of AIDS. They can be purchased on site at the Open, or online at USOpen.org or ArthurAshe.org.
